It’s National Peanut Butter Cookie Day!

To me, that's something we should celebrate. I LOVE PB. I can still remember the first time I bit into a peanut butter cookie - the buttery, sugary, slightly salty, crunchy, melt-in-your-mouth explosion of goodness was the real deal. I was hooked from day one. Lately, I haven't been indulging in as many cookies and... Continue Reading →

Get your chocolate fix

Looking for a chocolate fix? Go Dr. No. I (virtually) met Amale, the woman behind this amazing chocolate, last year. We chatted via email a bit and I learned that she wants to help people suffering from cancer, diabetes, and other illnesses live happier lives. She really wants to make a difference in our world...

Smooth or crunchy?

It's the age old PB question, but it fits with almond butter too. I’m a smooth gal myself, and my mom likes crunchy. There’s no compromise here; it’s either one or the other. Fortunately, most companies have caught on. One of these, Barney Butter, has so many awesome flavors and unique combinations such as Vanilla +... Continue Reading →

Cut those cravings 

Talking about your…*cough*…time of the month…*cough*...used to be really taboo. It was kind of like discussing your salary – something you kept private and maybe only shared with one or two people close to you. Now there are products and commercials galore related to women’s health, including everything from vitamins and pain reducers to all... Continue Reading →

Go ahead, get ENLIGHTENED

I would (possibly) give my right arm for a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream – it is my absolute favorite. There’s just something about that cool, minty feeling you get when you take the first bite. It’s magical. (It could also be that no one in my family likes it, so I know... Continue Reading →

You copycat!

Larabars are one of my favorite snacks, but the ones I like (Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip) are not Whole30 approved. I thought about making my own, subbing cashews for the peanuts  and leaving out the chocolate chips. Then I found out there is already a Larabar for that - Cashew Cookie. I eagerly tried it,...

Sugar, sugar

I have been on the hunt for the perfect sugar cookie for almost a decade - that's more than 1/3 of my life! Everyone on Pinterest claims to have the best recipe, but I beg to differ. I've tasted some that were downright terrible.  It all started when a neighbor brought over some of her... Continue Reading →

The dairy dilemma 

I didn’t find out that I was lactose intolerant until I was in my 20s, but looking back it all makes sense. If I ate ice cream late at night, I would be up around 2am with terrible stomach cramps and pains.  If I ate oatmeal with milk in the morning, I would throw it... Continue Reading →
